Last week we shared our hope to bring a meal packing event here to Old Bridge, New Jersey. We are partnering together with Numana to package more than 20,000 meals for the children of Haiti.
Our fundraising effort is off to a great start. In the first week, we raised more than 1/10 of the $6000 that will be necessary to host this event. We have enough for 9 of the 93 boxes we will be packing. Thank you to everyone who has contributed. Thank you for your partnership to feed the hungry.
Currently, through multiple partnerships here in the U.S. and Haiti, Mission of Hope Haiti is providing 93,000 meals a day to children in Haiti; however, the meals we will be preparing will do something different. There are currently 70,000 children on MOH’s waiting list. These children are waiting; they are waiting to have the opportunity to dream of their future and everything it may hold. The meals packaged on June 3, 2017, the meals you are helping fund, will help eliminate that waiting list. Your meals will impact lives with a brighter future. You are helping ensure that their stomachs are full so they are ready to learn and dream.
One word of caution when you donate. When you donate you will be directed to the Numana site. There are several different places you can donate on the Numana site. Numana hosts several of these events throughout the country. When you donate, make sure you are donating to our specific event in NJ. The url at the top of the page should read http://numanainc.com/hcm-donation/. This will make sure your donation is directed towards our event. Your donation receipt should also refer to our June 3 event.
